By Liviu Nicolaescu
This is the 1st textbook to incorporate themes similar to Morse-Smale flows, min-max thought, second maps and equivariant cohomology, and intricate Morse conception. The exposition is greater with examples, difficulties, and illustrations, and should be of curiosity to graduate scholars in addition to researchers. The reader is predicted to have a few familiarity with cohomology idea and with the differential and quintessential calculus on soft manifolds.
Liviu Nicolaescu is affiliate Professor of arithmetic at collage of Notre Dame.
